    El Nino Neps

    Hi everyone,

    This prolonged draught and low humidity hot weather really make our life "hotter" than usual in Peninsular Malaysia.

    Let's se how my neps are doing in such weather... I grew all my neps outdoor under 50% shade net in L/L tropical weather.


    N. ampullaria -1


    N. ampullaria - 2


    N. ampullaria x ventricosa aka N. x Singapore Gardentech


    N. distallatoria


    N. sp. Giant Tiger - possible a hybrid with N. mirabilis


    N. x Gothica - growing steadily...


    N. kongkandana


    N. thorelii x truncata - Newly opened pitcher (left), aged pitcher (right)


    N. lowii x boschiana - new pitcher opened this week, unfazed by the hot weather


    N. maxima-dark x (lowii x ventricosa)


    N. maxima-dark x merrilliana - color look faded, maybe it's still new or perhaps it's the hot weather...


    N. rafflesiana


    N. reinwardtiana


    N. spectabilis x ventricosa


    N. veitchii L/L - young plant


    N. veitchii H/L x boschiana


    N. viking x rafflesiana


    N. viking x (rafflesiana x viking) - latest pitcher with wings getting smaller and smaller and pitcher getting rounder and rounder...


    N. x hookeriana - 1


    N. x hookeriana - 2


    N. (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) x xTrusmadiensis - doing ok in tropical weather


    Thanks for viewing

    I was going to comment on a few individually, but the list got too long by the time I was done looking at all the photos. Killer collection! And great colors on some of those plants! Even for somebody who's colorblind like me!

    Wow, beautiful plant! If this is what they look like during a prolonged draught, I can only imagine what they would look like under more favorable conditions.... Just beautiful; thanks for sharing.

    gorgeous pitchers!
    however, if you would please rename your thorelii x truncata to bokorensis x truncata, it might help others realize that it is NOT thorelii in any of these EP hybrids, but rather bokorensis or one of the other indo-chinese species like smilesii. the real thorelii is NOT known to be in cultivation other than in the hands of a couple of kids in vietnam who poached them.
